NHS England fudges PrEP access and delays on-demand access to PrEP by years; blocks doctors from prescribing PrEP now

It is difficult to be impressed with this compromise. Rather than meet the real need of people currently at highest risk, it will further delay access to an option to prevent HIV transmission that has clearly passed the criteria for safety, efficacy and effectiveness laid out for other NHS treatments.

Findings show significant progress against HIV epidemic in Africa; 90-90-90 goals in reach

National surveys in Zimbabwe, Malawi, and Zambia reveal exceptional progress against HIV, with decreasing rates of new infection, stable numbers of people living with HIV, and more than half of all those living with HIV showing viral suppression through use of antiretroviral medication. For those on antiretroviral medication, viral suppression is close to 90 percent. Thirty-five years into the global HIV epidemic, these findings are a clear sign of progress and source of hope for the rest of the world.

UNAIDS: Young African women are especially vulnerable to HIV/AIDS

The annual World AIDS Day report of the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) offers a far more nuanced take on the epidemic than it has in previous years. For the first time, the report examines the disease in four age brackets that it calls “the life-cycle approach to HIV.” UNAIDS suggests this breakdown—0 to 14, 15 to 24, 25 to 49, and 50-plus—should lead to a clearer view of the epidemic’s “complex dynamics” and a more targeted response.
